About this game

WARNING: In this game about social interaction turns usually take A DAY OR MORE - not your average quick video game!

This is a digital version of the famous "Diplomatic" board game.

It pits players against each other on a political stage where only a combination of strategy and social influence bring you victory. A mix of Risk, Poker, Chess and Rock-Paper-Scissors, it was supposedly the favourite game of John Kennedy and Henry Kissinger.


We create and maintain this game in our spare time. If you have
- Problems, questions or comments
- Ideas or other suggestions.
- Topics to discuss with other players.

send them to diplicity-talk@googlegroups.com.

Features:
* Bring your diplomacy. Without diplomacy victory is impossible. It's the name of the game.
* Access from both Android or any other device (via www.diplicity.com) - play with your iOS friends!
* Beautiful, vector based maps with zooming, panning and touch to enter orders.
* Unlimited games with your friends or random players around the world.
* Order validation explaining why orders fail or not
* Message other players in the game.
* Variants: Fleet Rome, Ancient Mediterranean, Youngstown Redux and more!
* Create and configure your own games and invite your friends.
* Matchmaking: Filter on players on your skill or reliability level.
* Notifications for messages and new phases.
* History of all games to check the performance of friend and foe alike.

Note:
* Diplicity is based on a well known board game created by Calhamer, also based on diplomacy, which I am forbidden from explicitly naming in the Play store.
* If nobody commits in time or knows the rules make sure that you still commit your orders every turn. By building a good reliability score you'll be able to matchmake with more reliable players.
* Joining a game is serious. Players that abandons a game ruin it for the others. Please only join if you'll follow it through to the end.

This game has gotten very much better with the last update. Connectivity issues were fixed, and it is much better to play. I have only two things to change now: I would like if there was an alert to tell the player that the game had finished before you left, because right now it just closes the game when someone wins, and that's a bit confusing. Also, I noticed that if you are the last person to hit "RDY" and it goes to the next phase after you give the okay, you have to close the game out and reopen the game or even the app to get to the most recent version of the map. However, all is much better than before, good job guys!

- No connectivity issues were fixed to my knowledge :O - I'll try to replicate your issue, but I don't remember it happening to me? - Again, please send comments to diplicity-talk@googlegroups.com instead!

I love diplomacy, but it takes me a lot of time just to do certain. This could have a better UI and make a much more efficient game play. I'm not a fan of fast games, and I don't think I could play one on this app if I tried. Overall, this could be the best diplomacy platform with just a few more tweaks. I suggest a feature to send your orders up to the point of deadline? This allows me to send orders and not have NMRs, but allows me to change them if i needed to

If you send orders, but don't mark "RDY" in phase settings, you will get exactly what you ask for: You will not get an NMR, and the game will wait until deadline.

The game itself is lovely! The graphics are phenomenal! I like the scenarios! All of this said, I unfortunately have significant performance issues on my huawei p20 lite. I know it is not the best phone, but I doubt it can't handle loading a map and some text. Perhaps the devs could look into optimising the game. Edit: I had no clue there's a browser version, I'll use that for now, thanks a lot!

Yes, we have some performance issues :/ Until we have fixed them, you might get more speed if you try https://diplicity.com using e.g. Chrome.
